You can’t win at poker for very long without an advantage. And your advantage has many ingredients.
Position, for example, plays a large part in having an advantage. If other players are acting prior to you, this allows you an opportunity to view how things are developing and determine what your strategy should be. Your hands may give the illusion of being stronger, when you have the luxury of acting last. You see, the later you act the more dominant your cards will be.
Last - In fact, if you're last to act, it isn't always necessary to have a great hand to take advantage. Say, in hold ’em, you hold two top cards of the same suit and the flop gives you an opportunity for a flush, straight or pair. Then many times it's advisable to raise, since you could easily connect on the turn or river, could win the pot right now without being called, or could intimidate opponents into checking on the next round and leaving you in control. So, being aggressive when last to act can add to your advantage.

This is the fifth installment of my chronicling of a visit to 25 poker rooms in Central California. Frankly, by this stage of the journey I was getting tired and sick -- having come down with shingles.
Following a relatively quick stop at an emergency room to treat my painful virus, my friend Andrei and I visited the poker room/bowling alley/bar/restaurant known as Folsom Lake Bowl (511 East Bidwell Street, Folsom, 916-983-4411). The poker there is played in a separate five-table card room behind the restaurant. They typically have a morning game of $1-$3 no limit that starts by 11:00 AM, with a $40 bonus for players after they have completed three hours of live play. A later game begins at roughly 4:00 PM. They run a house-funded regular $10,000 freeroll tournament for the forty players with the most hours of qualifying play. There’s a bad beat promotion as well, funded out of the $4 + $1 maximum rake. They have a nice little Saturday night $30 tourney with a $1,000 guarantee. The poker room had just taken over the kitchen when I visited – and they were in the process of developing a poker player’s menu. If I lived closer I’d return to try it out.
We left the FLB and drove south to the Lodi Casino, (1800 S. Cherokee Lane Lodi, 209-334-9777). It’s located right on route 99, a 15 minute walk from a surprisingly nice Motel 6. It has seven poker tables. I enjoyed playing in a great, lively, $1-$3 no limit game. My buddy played some $4/8 with a half kill – and enjoyed his session as well. To help promote the room they have $3K, $10K and $50K freerolls, as well as comps of $2 an hour for live play. There’s a kitchen with a full menu. I sampled the $1 tacos. They were perfect as a snack. Later, I had the inexpensive prime rib dinner. It was outstanding.
